  1. Welcome. I did a lot of work at a few hospitals out there. Eat at Pals. Haha
  2. From the wording, it looks like there's a grandfather clause...not that it makes it any better. The big thing is that we can no longer buy or even sell or standard capacity magazines. That's the part that chaps me as well. This is going to be like Clinton all over again if it passes...ARs are going to skyrocket...it's stupid... Introduced in House (02/15/2019) Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 This bill makes it a crime to knowingly import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault weapon (SAW) or large capacity ammunition feeding device (LCAFD). The prohibition does not apply to a firearm that is (1) manually operated by bolt, pump, lever, or slide action; (2) permanently inoperable; (3) an antique; or (4) a rifle or shotgun specifically identified by make and model. The bill also exempts from the prohibition the following, with respect to a SAW or LCAFD: importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession related to certain law enforcement efforts, or authorized tests or experiments; importation, sale, transfer, or possession related to securing nuclear materials; and possession by a retired law enforcement officer. The bill permits continued possession, sale, or transfer of a grandfathered SAW, which must be securely stored. A licensed gun dealer must conduct a background check prior to the sale or transfer of a grandfathered SAW between private parties. The bill permits continued possession of, but prohibits sale or transfer of, a grandfathered LCAFD. Newly manufactured LCAFDs must display serial number identification. Newly manufactured SAWs and LCAFDs must display the date of manufacture. The bill requires law enforcement agencies to be notified when a prohibited person attempts to purchase a grandfathered SAW. It also allows a state or local government to use Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program funds to compensate individuals who surrender a SAW or LCAFD under a buy-back program.
  3. Ok, so there's a few articles here that were posted that say what I said above. They only want you checking firearms when selling, trading, or having work done... The people at the front just want to make sure any gun coming into the store in a case, is unloaded. If you're carrying, they don't care...but as you said, the advised us to inform the customer, "Please do not unholster your firearms here at the counter." When I worked in gun shops, we weren't really fond of people unholstering either inside the shop. We did have an "Unloading Bucket" at the door, that you could point it into and unload and clear away from the counter and people, and if there was an AD, it would go into the safety canester. We always prefered if you're looking to have work done, or trade, that it came in unloaded, and in a case...and up in MA, that case had to be locked....but that's a different story from the states that aren't as difficult.
  4. Thank you! Yes, it's nice to no longer have to worry about a preban magazine...and now I can get standard capacity mags without the "preban" markup!
  5. That's a pretty good visual description of the differences. I do think, as mentioned above, that a 22mag may be better for those nests, but I still think that this would be a fun rifle to have for options if you have some land. It has it's uses, and as I said before, I don't have a need...this is more of a, "I love .22s and lever guns." type of a thing. I also like the difference is decibels between this and a .410. The fact that it's much quieter is good for in closer housed neighborhoods.
  6. I don’t know, I would have thought If it was, they would have listed it as such. Don’t you think? But now that’s a good question...
  7. Right?!! At that price, it’s almost like they are giving them away!!! if they end up putting this on the Golden Boy line, it would look good next to the .22LR.
  8. Ok, I can’t be the only one excited about this rifle coming out. Granted, I don’t live on a farm, and need a good snake gun. But I’m kind of a .22 whore and loves me some lever guns. Its listed with an MSRP of 420, so I’m guessing we’ll see it closer to 350. And when my wife asks me how many guns do I really need? I answer, “I don’t know, all of them?” https://www.henryusa.com/shotgun/garden-gun-smoothbore-22/
  9. When I was younger, I worked at a Bass Pro at the gun counter. We only had people check in guns if they were bringing them to us for sale, or to have something done. We didn’t care about them otherwise. I wonder if that’s a TN thing or if it’s a company wide policy?
  10. Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I’m looking forward to getting to know all y’all.
  11. Nice, I lived in North Attleboro. I miss Wendell’s and Tex Barry’s. Haha. Other than my kids, that may be about it. My office is in Waltham and I sure don’t miss the traffic...2 hours to go 20 miles. Worse if the Pats were playing or if there was snow. I have family our in Knoxville and such...it’s beautiful out there. Spent a lot of time plinking our in the woods of my Uncle’s land when I was a kid.
